Dancer injured with no help can’t walk

Hi my name is khalela jackson, i’m a teen mom who has been a dancer for a little over a year now to help take care of my two year old son . I’ve been diagnosed with depression and anxiety along with bpd . Dancing has always been hard but it got the bills paid i just moved to houston texas from memphis tennessee to create a better life for me and my son due to crime rates and murders in my city as i been here i’ve dealt with sexual harassment from mangers and colorism where they would steal money from me and not let me dance for customers they feel like i wasn’t good enough to dance for . i’ve struggled with body Disphoryia already but houston clubs made it absolutely worse by saying things like im too big to dance for that customer or too dark but i’ve pushed through i even did private parties at one which me and a friend was drugged unconscious and rapped and robbed in a houston AIRBNB . I didn’t start a go fund me then because it was to heart trenching to deal with but now i have injured myself to where i can not walk for 6 weeks in a club on richmomd ave in houston. I was dancing there and the club was slow so i put my clothes on and i was walking out to leave as i step down the last step a puddle of alcohol and juice was wated on the floor the fur slides i had on made me slip and fall on my back with my leg stuck on the bottom stair causing me to twist my ankle and have a lump on the back of my neck when i fell the manager/ dj & a sercuity guard hurried and pulled me up so customers wouldn’t see me and sat me on the couch no one asked was i ok nobody checked on me nobody even wanted to walk me out i had to ask a guard to walk me to my uber because i couldn’t walk i stayed home that night and took as much medicine as i had until i woke up that morning unable to move and body shaking in pain . i had to call the ambulance. This is not the first injury to my ankle this is the 3rd and not the first time this happened in a houston club in july i tore a ligament in my knee on stage at a club on jensen dr due to slippery stage nobody cared then i was even cursed out for calling a ambulance because they didn’t want to pay the bill so they begged me not to call even though i couldn’t walk and i was screaming in pain luckily i was still living with my mom then so she called the ambulance and got me help but even then i was to dumb and scared to say anything but this is my 3 traumatic incident in houston texas in under 6 months my mental can not take this i want to be better for my son and get medical treatment and get help because i don’t want to live anymore i can’t do this by myself and im really trying but i have no help or support so i created this fundraiser so someone could help me get a lawyer since i can’t work for 6 weeks my rent will be due soon and i want to be able to take care of my son so i don’t have to put him in foster care please anything helps even just a email with advice will help as well god bless .
